(Xbox MSG, Discord General Chat and Direct Messages)

Racism / Discrimination
X-Rated Curse Words
R-Rated words directed at someone or team in an aggressive manor.

Depending on the severity the following actions are at the league’s disposal.
MUTE – Ranging from Hours / Days / Week / The Season
Removal from the Discord
Removal from the league
All Actions will be voted on by the League Owners, The 3HLPA, and Owners Rep before being implemented. (2/3 Majority)
Any of the 3 League Administrators may mute any member while awaiting a vote.
Keep it fun and light, we want you to chirp to promote competitiveness, but we don’t want Toxic Players who ruin the experience.
*If you need any Clarifications you may PM the League Owners:
AnGiiRaffEy#2529, Barley#2649, or blgDADDYdonald#8448
* If you see something, Say Something. We are human and will miss things so feel free to PM a League Administrator about any concerns.
Punishments for breaking the rules will be broken into categories of Schedule 1 through Schedule 5, with a schedule 1 offenses being reserved for the most extreme cases.
When referring to punishments, a offense will be followed by a call out from “Available Punishments” below.
For example: A player shall not post nudity in the discord (Schedule 3)
Any rule referring to a Schedule 3 means the league can choose any action from a Schedule 5 to a Schedule 3 from either “Chats Bans”, “Suspensions”, or a mix of both.
League Administrators will make the determination based on the seriousness of the offense and action taken in past offenses similar in context.
To ensure consistency or the appearance of bias, every offense will be logged and available to all players.
The Log will have the players name, the offense, the punishment, and a statement from the league explaining it decision. (Think Branden Shanahan as VP of Player Safety)
Repeat offenders are subject to discipline beyond what's classified below. This could lead to a ban depending on the severity.
